Training & Exercise 

Emergency preparedness training and exercises are not open to the public. Community Outreach events are open to the public. Official agency representatives who want to observe exercises may contact the Office of Emergency Management about attending.

Exercise Schedule

Exercises are a key component of national preparedness—they provide elected and appointed officials and stakeholders from across the whole community with the opportunity to shape planning, assess and validate capabilities, and address areas for improvement in a low-risk environment.
